The Skateroom has collaborated with Peanuts to celebrate the comic strips’ 70th anniversary by releasing limited edition art decks.
The 14 decks feature the works of The Peanuts Global Artist Collective composed of artists André Saraiva x Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, AVAF, FriendsWithYou, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Rob Pruitt, and Kenny Scharf.
The project features two designs from each artist, a single deck, and a triptych edition which is limited to 100 per design. The boards are available until the end of the year.
The artists have reworked original Peanuts imagery and have drawn influences from the iconic comic into their designs with each having their own unique style.
For each deck sold the project raises funds for projects that aim to support, protect, and educate vulnerable young people around the world using a “5:25” business model – whichever is larger out of 5% of turnover or 25% of every sale’s profit is donated.
So far, The Skateroom has raised over $700,000 to fund 34 socially engaged skate projects across the world.
